Tesla learned to recover 92% of materials from used batteries

Tesla has published detailed information on how to recycle batteries: according to the company, they recover 92% of used materials.

The company has released its Annual Environmental Report detailing the development of its first battery recycling line at its Nevada facility. It will process waste from the primary production of lithium batteries and extract minerals from used batteries.

Previously, the company used the services of third-party converters, but in its own production Tesla was able to achieve an efficiency of 92%.

The company plans to establish battery recycling lines at all of its new factories, which will not only make electric vehicles, but also make batteries.

Such efficient processing, the company notes, will save on raw materials for the production of new batteries. In addition, this decision will have a positive impact on the environment.

Last year, the company recovered 1,300 tons of nickel, 400 tons of copper and 80 tons of cobalt from recycled batteries.
